Compostela is an electrical home composter that optimises the composting process through aeration of the compost, temperature control and the addition of aerobic bacteria.

It contains several layers of activated carbon filters, making it odour-free and reducing the volume of the inserted matter by 70%, generating a fertiliser rich in nutrients. It allows users to manage the disposal of organic waste in the home, reducing the volume of waste sent to landfills and relieving pressure on the city’s waste disposal systems.
